Aspen Russell contributes to Planet Forward’s goals in renewable energy and sustainability through video web series and community engagement as the video production intern. Aspen has a passion for renewable energy stemming in part from his experience racing a solar-powered vehicle internationally, which he helped engineer. His background in electrical engineering and computer science is complemented by enthusiasm for social justice issues; at American University, Aspen is double majoring in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies and computer science. In his free time, Aspen enjoys video production and photography projects, tailoring his own clothes, and hiking with his wife, Dorian.
